Coda For A Captain


At the age of 80, Captain Meirson embarks on his last sail at open seas on his hand-made boat.
Surrounded by the breaking waves and sounds of depths, he refuses to accept what is more frightening than the winds - growing old.

CODA FOR A CAPTAIN is a poetic interpretation of “The old man and the sea”, which exposes the experience of loneliness and aging.
